                         Reflections by the Chief Tower Guard

     Well, now, how did this happen?  I guess it doesn't really matter.  All that
counts is that at least for 1 turn I am the Tower Guardian.  I don't foresee me
staying in this positon long, so I would like to thank all those people that helped
me get here.  First my manager, Wretch, who saw something special in me when no one
else did.  He brought me out of retirement and got me here even though I was 10 years
out of my prime.  To all my training partners who I thought were just letting me win
but I guess I was actually better then them.  This proves it.  Doesn't it?  Oh, well,
it doesn't matter, 'cause I am the BEST.  Right?  I would also like to thank all the
top gladiators for taking a turn off and letting me have my 5 minutes.

Your Tower Guardian, Black Flag

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     An amazingly good day here, and the sun shining besides, what more can we ask?
Within reason.
     We had forty-one fights, which is excellent!  True, there were eight standbys
involved, which weakens it a little, but we're still ahead of any other advanced
arenas except Talahya and Primus.  This is as it should be, the tortoise has
absolutely overtaken the hares!  Good work, really good.
     Of those fortyone fights, ten were challenge matches, none of them, alas, tv
challenges.  Still, there WERE challenges.
     The longest fights were five minutes, unless I missed something.  I'm sure we
can do better than that.  The long fight is, or should be, our specialty.
     Evalon Elkhorn had the greatest advance at forty points.
     Desperado had the greatest decline, at thirty-four points.  These two did not
fight each other.
     Land of Oz, and we're glad they are not staying away, was most avoided.  The
Sentinels did the most avoiding.
     Gimlet got the most challenges.
     With forty-one fights on the program, I'm afraid I can't talk about every one of
them.  The price of activity, I suppose.  Since nobody died, I'm going to jump
straight down to the challenge matches and just mention those.  If this policy is
objectionable to anyone, if you want to hear at least a few words about every fight,
a note in the personals next time will bring this full coverage back.

So, the challenge matches:
     SURGICAL (28-4437) (17-20-0,71) of STEEL AND SILK challenged CHINA MILKMAID (47-
6502) (15-2-1,74) of LAND OF OZ.  Up 3.  SURGICAL was vanquished by CHINA MILKMAID in
a 1 minute one-sided Challenge duel.  They tell me--the Infirmary crew--that it's
very hard to perform surgery on a china anything, which may explain Surgical's
problem.  Or possibly not.
     BALDASSARE (7-6003) (18-9-0,68) of SENTINELS challenged GIMLET (4-6218) (26-42-
2,78) of THE SHALLOWSHIP.  Up 10.  BALDASSARE vanquished GIMLET in a 1 minute one-
sided Challenge duel.  This is Gimlet the Most Challenged, remember.  Whether that is
due simply to a double challenge from Baldy (they tell me he has a full head of hair
but doesn't mind the nickname if it's friendly), or whether someone else wanted a
chance here, I can't say.  It's amazing how much the clerks in the office don't tell
me.
     SCARLET ROSE (28-4440) (15-21-0,34) of STEEL AND SILK challenged ARAGANT (4-
6220) (36-30-0,56) of THE SHALLOWSHIP.  Up 18.  SCARLET ROSE handily defeated ARAGANT
in a 1 minute uneven Challenge melee.  That's the thing about Aragant, he's got
swelled head.  This can lead to trouble for a gladiator.
     VELVET FINISH (28-4441) (17-18-0,75) of STEEL AND SILK challenged CRIMSON MIST
(8-5047) (27-15-1,87) of BLOOD RITES.  Up 12.  VELVET FINISH was overpowered by
CRIMSON MIST in a 1 minute Challenge brawl.  Does this mean we now have red velvet?
Or a well-finshed mist?
     EXPERIENTIA (28-4483) (19-11-0,95) of STEEL AND SILK challenged D'URVILLE (39-
3800) (19-8-1,99) of KIWI CONNECTION.  Up 4.  EXPERIENTIA lost to D'URVILLE in a 1
minute bloody Challenge fight.  The Kiwis are strange birds, and very well connected.
And just in passing, I would commend Michael Eldritch on placing himself squarely in
the ranks of the Managers Who Manage.  An exclusive club, and a generally successful
one.

     OLIANDER (7-5911) (25-13-2,146) of SENTINELS challenged U.S.S. ARIZONA (34-2643)
(35-25-1,168) of D-DAY SQUAD.  Up 22.  OLIANDER overpowered U.S.S. ARIZONA in a 1
minute mismatched Challenge match.  Ah, must be all the vitamins in that peculiar
drink you favor, Oliander.  Better than the more traditional drinks of gladiators
(beer and whiskey), is it?
     ANVIL IRONFIST (81-84) (33-9-0,156) of DRAGONBANE GUILD challenged GALENA (28-
3505) (23-15-0,160) of BOXOROX.  Up 4.  ANVIL IRONFIST bested GALENA in a 2 minute
Challenge fight.  I believe the Ironfist actually, litterally, flattened Galena, that
being one of the rocks that is susceptible to such treatment.
     BULL FROG (73-4547) (30-11-0,193) of THE BULLS challenged HOPE (20-2555) (34-39-
1,193) of THE FAMILY TREE.  Straight across.  BULL FROG was savagely defeated by HOPE
in an action packed 2 minute Challenge fight.  Someone told me once that Hope
Conquers All.  It would appear that there is a grain or two of truth in that.
Amazing.
     DAIRY QUEEN (47-2685) (92-48-3,198) of ROYAL FLUSH challenged THELONIUS (21-
6631) (28-7-1,201) of NOMADIC TRIBE.  Up 3.  DAIRY QUEEN subdued THELONIUS in a 2
minute Challenge melee.  Many are weakened, hesitate... are lost by the mere thought
of ice cream, and why shouldn't Thelonius be one of them, eh?
     SLIPPERY NIPPLE (59-2323) (30-20-1,183) of HANGOVERS challenged HUNTSMAN (7-
5837) (29-11-0,191) of SENTINELS.  Up 8.  SLIPPERY NIPPLE was devastated by HUNTSMAN
in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge fight.  Probably the snow tires.  You will all
realize, if you've been reading this, that out of ten challenges posted here, NOT ONE
was a downchallenge.  I don't believe any other arena on the Isle can say that.
Sporting of you.  Good work!

For the title:
     BLACK FLAG (82-46046) (40-27-3,221) of TONGUE N CHEEK fought MAJOR DAMAGE (31-
600) (84-52-2,332) of MILITARY MAYHEM.  A random match.  BLACK FLAG was overpowered 
by MAJOR DAMAGE in a 1 minute uneven Title match.  Condolences to Black Flag (a kind
of fancy iris, yes?) and congratulations to Major Damage.  And by the next time we
meet, the snow should be off the ground, which is good.  Snow should be seen--
briefly--and then melted away.

THE DEAD                   W   L  K TEAM NAME              SLAIN BY                  TURN

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Ketchum -- Fooled you!  We just couldn't stay away. -- The Consortium Folk

     Good.  We're glad to have you here.

Domjon -- I was surely on for our fight, don't you think.  I think that is the best I
have in me.  Pardon me, now, while I go milk a china cow. -- China Milkmaid

The Smell Of It -- Thank the gods Oz's gas masks still work. -- Winkie

Michael -- Show 'em how those Telorinthers do it! -- Coach

All -- Huh, I'm not sure why my team didn't run last round.  The posts made it, but
no strategies?  Well, here goes another shot.  Please welcome Gushan, my first
Telorinth grad.  His teammate Paraldoxia should be here next round. -- Michael
Eldritch, mgr. Steel and Silk/Zeitgeist

Ghost Dancer -- Nice job for win number 40.  Evidently the dance did work on me.  Oh
well, back into retirement. -- Baron Stonewall

Godsmack -- Terrablood definitely has your style wrong.  That wasn't the reason, but
I definitely got smacked. -- Baldassare

Evalon Elkhorn -- There was a time when I would have been crushed in that matchup.
Perhaps I am learning something after all. -- Balliol

U.S.S. Arizona -- Perhaps I am better when I don't plan for the matchup?  Live and
learn, I guess. -- Huntsman

Aragant -- And that makes two in a row.  I could begin to enjoy this winning thing.
It had been so easy in basic.  It seems getting challenges through helps. -- Obrojobo

Mad Cat -- Listen, it wasn't MY idea to give you a bath! -- Young Joan
P.S.  Though I concur with the judgment that you need one.  I didn't realize golems
could get so whiff.

Gerrick Grimm -- You'd make a bear, if you had a better fur.  I'm looking for a
bearskin, you see.  Cold winters here, need the heavier coat. -- Billy Lilly

Lumbering Waif -- Maybe you should take ballet lessons, eh? -- Desperado

Baron Stonewall -- I suppose that, not being a dragon, I have a slight edge against
you.  I needed it. -- Ghost Dancer
P.S.  Never heard of that place you're from, doesn't sound Andorian at all.

Collingwood -- A much-traveled man, I see. -- Amelia

9 February 10
All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
-- Fizban the Famous
